These young Amazonian girls hook on to a fast-moving boat traveling down the Amazon.
Either these Brazilian girls are the ultimate entrepreneurs and really believe that the people on this big tug boat will buy their goods or they’re catching a ride to the next town over.
Either way, this is risky and an impressive feat. They catch up to a fast-moving boat, furiously paddling their canoe, hook on and proceed to climb aboard.
I’m sure that many of the small towns along the Amazon rely on tourism. These girls were not letting this boat get away from them.
Growing up in a small community on the Amazon, in the middle of the jungle, would make you pretty tough. Every day on the Amazon would be an adventure.
